Virginia Sen. James Webb (D) tonight will deliver a blistering eight-minute response to the President's State of the Union address. Aides promised it will be an aggressive challenge to Bush's Iraq policies from the newly empowered Democratic majority in Congress.
Kristian Denny Todd, Webb's spokeswoman during the campaign, said the speech is a big moment for Webb, who spent much of the last two decades writing books and articles about war and its consequences.
"This is the opportunity he's wanted for four years," Todd said. "Like one of his Op-Eds, but broadcast to millions of Americans in his own voice."
